Best bang for buck MIDI drumkit

Electronic drummers out there.. please help .
I had enough of drumming on my midi keyboard. So I've been scouring the web for a midi drum-kit within the 300 euro range.
For an electronic midi drum-set im not looking for the built-in sounds at all.
The purpose of the drum-kit will solely be getting dynamic sounding drum-patterns (all music styles) into my FL studio piano roll.

Atm. some guy is now trying to sell me the Medeli DD-402 for 125 euro's.

But maybe some of you more experienced guys have better options. The drums do not have to be new.

This looks great.. but sadly to expensive:

Re: Best bang for buck MIDI drumkit

Hi,

I have an Alesis DM10 that was pretty inexpensive for an electronic drumset. I did switch out the bass drum with a Yamaha one though because my other one wasn't responsive enough for me. I also switched the plastic drum heads with mesh heads relatively easily and it feels and plays pretty well.

I would definitely recommend checking it out. I have it running into Ableton and triggering samples from a drum rack.

The Medeli DD-402 are pretty cheap because the components are prone to break. It's ok for recording midi, but test it out before you buy it. Like make sure all the pads register the full velocity dynamics on MIDI out.

I put my own together from random gear I found people selling for cheap. Found an ME35T (trigger-to-midi) for $25 at a used gear sale and went from there.

I've had my eye on one of the Alesis kits with the mesh heads. The mesh heads make such a big difference for me. 125 euros aint too bad though. I'd be tempted. Try em out first.

Re: Best bang for buck MIDI drumkit

I've pieced mine together. I don't like the look of V-kits so I bought mesh heads an triggers and put them on my kit with V-drum cymbal pads. Throw in an SPD-SX and a TD-11 drum brain and I'm having the time of my life. I can either use the included sounds, what's coming out of Ableton, or layer them both.

Get the Roland TD-4K if you want something portable.
